Play 2.4.X : Microservice Architecture using Play and Scala


This blog describes a basic Microservice architecture design using Play 2.4.X and Scala. The big idea behind microservices is to architect large, complex and long-lived applications as a set of cohesive services that evolve over time. The term microservices strongly suggests that the services should be small.

In short, the microservice architectural style is an approach to developing a single application as a suite of small services, each running in its own process and communicating with lightweight mechanisms, often an HTTP resource API.

Dive into code level activities

Scalastyle : Check the code quality

To check code quality of all the modules

$ ./activator clean compile scalastyle

Scoverage : Check code coverage of test cases

To check code coverage of test cases for all modules

$ ./activator clean coverage test

By default, scoverage will generate reports for each project seperately. You can merge them into an aggregated report by invoking

$ ./activator coverageAggregate

Deployment : microservices

$ ./activator "project <service-name>" "run <PORT>"
